I grew up with this man. I love his work, and I’m truly devastated he’s gone :(

Seeing that your page is back up has made my week a whole lot brighter - you were my inspiration, and what I achieved to be at the end of the road when I could finally conquer myself and get healthier. I really hope you understand that, despite the tough times, you still kept at it. It may have been hard but you did it. I hope I can say the same thing some day. :)

Hey, are you at a point now where you can eat more reasonable meals? I had surgery about 9 months ago and can still only manage a few mouthfuls. Finding my lack of appetite really hard to explain to friends.

You don’t need to explain a thing. But I understand, I had the same thing! Is it something you are concerned about and need to see your surgeon about do you think?

Hi. I am 17, 174cm and 84.5kg. I know I am not huge but I really want to lose weight and get down to 70kg. I lost 10kg last year and went from 86 to 76kg. But then ended up gaining 8.5kg from September 13 to January 14 due to binge eating. I know go to see a counsellor to help with my binge eating disorder. And she suggested to stop dieting/restricting... But I want to lose weight and fear that if I just eat in moderation I'll gain more weight not lose. Thank you x

I totally understand your fears, and you need to find someone that will properly listen to you and understand what is going on. It is one of the hardest things I have learnt, and feels so confusing but moderation can be key for some. Others go cold turkey. You need to find the balance and not focus so much on gains. Start by cutting down on those foods, if you have say 2 bars of chocolate (or whatever it is) just have the one, and see how you go at teaching yourself and showing yourself how powerful you are. You are in control of what you eat, and you must do what makes you happy. Food can be toxic, in that many of us have such unhealthy relationships with food (or certain foods). It’s a long term lesson, and one that I’m still going through.

You lost over a person, isn't that crazy to think about. I am pretty new on your train of followers, but seriously you go girl. Holy fucking shit. Personally I think you were a beautiful girl to start with, but Jesus, you are a bomb shell. Congratulations on the journey. You at an inspiration.

Oh I love you!! Thank you so much :) x

How much do you weigh now Jess? You look amazing! Congratulations on your hard work, you don't get enough recognition for your efforts.

I’m sitting at about 79 and I’m honestly really happy. I have never had so much confidence and positivity in my life as I have these last 3 months :)

Don't listen to idiots like that anon who was acting like you didn't work for what you got. It's sad that people exist who only get happiness in life from making others feel badly because they feel so shitty about their own lives. I've known people who had the surgery and didn't lose hardly anything because they still ate the same and sat on the couch all day. No one can take from you what you've earned. You look amazing!!! 😍

During your weight loss journey did you have weeks were you gained weight? if so was it more than once? and how did u feel?
Asked by Anonymous

Yeah absolutely! It never seemed like a massive amount so I was never really fussed. In the grand scheme of things it’s a tiny gain from my massive loss, so I’m much more positive about things these days. :) x

Hello! I think you look your age so I hope I do not sound rude but after losing weight from your face, does the skin feel saggy at all? Your skin looks amazing though, do you have a skincare regime? Thank you and take care!

No not at all!

I scrub my face in the shower with St Ives apricot scrub, and then use Frank body scrub all over (including my face). I use Johnson’s Face Care makeup wipes to take off all my make up every night. Biore nose and face strips for blackheads and Montagne Jeunesse Blemish Mud face masks :)

Thank you so much for adding the text about your breast and body lifts to your picture! So many times girls remove that kind of information from a post and it perpetuates this belief that you're going to look tight and perfect after losing over a hundred pounds. A lucky few do but for most of us the weight has done too much damage for the skin to bounce back.

That is absolutely true! It feels horrible having that idea in your head and having reality smash you in the face!

The day u went bak to solid food. Did u from time to time eat fast food or sweets?

Not really no, the surgery temporarily removes a hormone called Ghrelin which makes you crave these things. My cravings and desire was significantly reduced in that time. x
